Dr. Kieran is very straight forward and concise. She doesn't mess around. She flat out told us our daughter should have been better by that time, if she was going to get better on her own, and that surgery was the best option. We put our daughter through the awful VCUG again just to make sure she still had a problem. Sure enough she did, and had gotten worse. We immediately opted for the surgery. Dr. Kieran did a fantastic job. Any time we have concerns we call and someone always calls back quickly, sometimes more than once to recheck on us. Her partners are awesome and call evenings and weekends just to check up on how we're doing.
Dr. Kieran was very good with my son during his surgery. It can take some time to get an appointment, but once you are there, things go very smoothly. Dr. Kieran is very direct but wants you to be an educated patient, so she spends a lot of time explaining the problem and the different ways to treat it. She responds quickly to phone calls and emails and never makes me feel like I am bothering her.
